The village also has a football team and a cricket team, both quite successful in their local leagues.HistoryDoveridge was recorded in the Domesday Book, under the old English name "Dubbige", as belonging to Henry de Ferrers and being worth one hundred shillings.According to legend, Robin Hood and Maid Marian were married under the old yew tree in the churchyard of St Cuthbert's Church in the village. The church is over 900 years old and has an historic peal of bells.The A50 from Derby to Stoke-on-Trent used to run through the village.
